Why do we sing? 為什麼要唱歌?


Why do we sing?

為什麼要唱歌?

Some might say singing are our inborn talent, our natural instinct. “Why do we sing?” This question sound straightforward, and abstract enough like the kind of question philosophers ponder upon. But as music teachers, we believe that it is important to ponder this question on a practical level, rather than treating it as something theoretical.

A better way to phrase this question is through comparison. “Why do we sing instead of just uttering the words?”Behind every song, there are emotional elements, some being strong and direct, and others, a labyrinth full of contradiction. Through singing, these emotional elements could be enhanced through the richer resources of expression. To sing is to express artistically through the combination of music, lyric and human voice. Through both listening to and performing songs, we are afloat with flows and waves of continuously alternating emotions and be connected to imageries and state of mind unachievable by simple words. It is one of the biggest joy, and at the same time, the biggest challenge, to express your heart with a song.

What do you feel? Have you experience the same sadness or exhilaration in the song? What is in the song that you are desperate to express to the audience? The devil is in the details. Pay attention to your emotional expression in every detail -- this mindset alone is the signpost necessary for enhancing your singing performance. When you are faced with a room of audience, when they want to know how good you are, they always root for the details, the strength, tempo, continuity and discontinuity, strengthening and weakening of your voice. All of these vocal control effect the audience’s impression of your singing skill.

The devil is in the details.

When we learn to sing, we invest time and effort into enhancing our skill. But on top of that, it is a delightful labor to figure out the central idea and sentiments encrypted in the song. Through your voice, how can express these elements and stun a roomful of audience? Singing to interpret and convey - this mentality is crucial for enhancing your singing performance.

  有人說,唱歌是人類的本能,是與生俱來的才能。【人為什麼要唱歌】這個問題看似很直觀,也像一種哲學家玩味的抽象議題。但其實,這個問題在唱歌實踐層面而言亦大有關係。

  換一個說法,【能夠說出來的話,為什麼要用唱歌的形式表達?】在每一段歌曲背後,都有一種感情的元素,這感情可能是直接,按耐不住的激動,也可以是百感交集,就充滿予盾的。透過唱歌,這些感情元素能夠從日常對話中升華,並得到更豐富的表達。歌曲是抒情的藝術表達方式,是音樂,歌詞與人聲三種元素的結合。無論是透過欣賞音樂或唱歌本身,我們能夠産生連續而複雜的感情,連結到三言兩語無法達至的意境。【唱出心裡話】,這是學唱歌的一大樂趣,同時是唱歌技巧訓練的一大難關。

  你的感受是什麼?你有經驗過歌中的意境嗎?有什麼是抑在歌曲,抑在心裡而不訴不快的?在唱歌中最重要的,就是在每個細節都不忘這種思維,這種思維將會使你的歌唱表演提升至新的高度。著重音樂和咬字的準確度固然重要,但當你面對現場觀眾時,他們留意的,往往是細節部分的處理——速度、力度、情感、連與斷、激進與收斂——一切的細節都影響對你的唱功的印象。

一切的關鍵在於細節

  在學唱歌的路途中,我們為提升唱功投入時間與汗水。在學習唱一首歌時,你又沒有研究這首歌不得不被唱出來的示素是什麼?透過你的聲音與技巧,這個元素將如何感染一室的觀眾?去探究歌曲的感情和主題思想,以釋義和傳意的角度學唱歌,這個心態是提升演出表現的關鍵。
